Oops I meant 0xA5, but changing it to 0x0B didn't help 
either.

upgrading.. slower than needs be

Watching the RC1->RC2 upgrade on my nice shiny new 15Mb/sec internet 
link, I now see that teh upgrade process does one file at a time.
it would be a lot faster to overlap the downloads if it were possible. 
Does the upgrade process know of more than one file that it needs to get?

One could at least make the fetch of the checksum file be done in 
parallel, so that the tcp handshake is done during the transfer of the 
main file.
Looking at my system upgrading however it looks as though there is 
something else that should be found too.
It's 95 % idle, yet it is only asking for each file, one at a time 
with large gaps between them.(10 seconds)?
Disk I doesn't seem to be  a bottleneck either so I can't work out 
what the holdup is.

Epiphany is a required part of the GNOME system package, which is why it
does not show up in the AppCafe list, since the AppCafe only deals with
PBI installations. If you install Chromium via the AppCafe, you should
then be able to select Chromium as the default browser in the control panel.
I have noticed that there is an annoying pop-up in Chromium that says
that it is not the default browser when it actually is. That is just an
error within the program itself, it isn't looking in the proper place
for the default applications. You should just be able to hit the "don't
show again" option on that pop-up and it won't bother you again. :-)

RC2.. can no longer log in

really there are two bugs:

1/ after upgrade my login no longer works. I type the right password, the
screen goes away as if I got it right. I start getting a background screen
(different screen if I try as root) and then there is a flash and I'm
back at the login screen again. Either the X session or the X server
is dying I think.

2/ no matter how many times I disable the firewall on boot, at the
next boot, there it is again...
so I can't ssh into it.

my only option is single user

What desktop you trying to log into? If KDE, you need to "rm -rf
/var/tmp/kdecache-*" first.

You are disabling pf_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf? Not sure why it would
be starting without that.
